Plus, this is the first winery to obtain the ‘Certified Sustainable Wine of Chile’ accreditation for 100% of its vineyards. The vineyard’s viticulturalist, Sergio Hormazabal and winemaker, Angel Marchant utilise biological corridors and biodiversity areas to produce beautiful wines in harmony with the local landscape.
The Yali winery has also has a conscientious zero waste policy in its use of water through to organic fertiliser. As well as the use of solar panels at its wineries, Yali has switched the majority of its bottles to a lightweight version, in order to make recycling easier and so reduce its carbon footprint.
